Windows 7: Computer crashes after the Windows sign appears during startup

Having some trouble getting to the repair screen. When I boot the system using the windows 7 disk, it gets to the windows logo, and then just doesn't do anything after this?

Did you hit any key so it would load from the disc?

I'm just making sure because it shouldn't halt like that. Better yet, change the boot order so the optical drive is primary and the HDD is secondary.

Yes, I did hit the key to load from disc. I will double check boot order now, but I am pretty sure optical drive was first.

Optical was first in boot order. Tried again, and it still halts. If its of any use, the computer goes silent after about 30 seconds of the windows logo, as if the disc has stopped spinning.

Alright. Let's forget about the disc for now then.

Remove it, set the HDD back to primary and continually press F8 during bootup and see if you can initiate it that way. If successful, go to "repair your computer". It should be the topmost option above safe mode.

This isn't working for me. Pressing F8 during boot up just leads to a menu allowing me to choose boot priority

I think you might want to kick your computer a little.

Does attempting to load from the disc still result in nothing at all? You can try this: Create a System Repair Disc

If creating a disc isn't a viable option (and it doesn't appear to be) you can create a Repair flash drive.

Earlier this morning, the boot up worked with the disc and I ran repair and it fixed the problem. All runs smoothly in boot up now, but it says I only have limited access to my Internet. When I up the network and sharing centre, it says that the dependency service or group failed to start. Any ideas what this is or how to fix the problem?

Yes, there are couple of things you can do to resolve that issue.

Start with the simplest first, open up an elevated (run as admin) command prompt and input the following:

sfc /scannow (for the entire rundown click me)

If that doesn't resolve your issue then we'll move onto the other methods.

Just carried out this step, and resulted in 'Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations'

Crap. There's a workaround for that, and I can't remember what it is right now.

Try restarting a couple of times and attempting to run it again. Before you do that though, did the scan complete or did it stop at some odd percentage?
